Dancing Queen Hot Sauce
It’s Merfs’ first chipotle hot sauce and we made a sauce that’s different than the other chipotle sauces you’ll find. It’s peppery and tangy with a hint of chipotle, and the finish is sweet fire. It’s tart and slightly acidic while embracing the fruitiness of the guajillo peppers and honoring the earth of the chipotle meco.

What is chipotle meco?
The two main types of chipotle chilis, “Morita” and “Meco”, are both smoked red ripe jalapeños. The Meco chilis are left on the bush even longer than those picked as red jalapeños to be sold at markets. Once the peppers start losing their moisture they are harvested to become “Meco” chipotles.
The Chipotle Meco (also known as Chile “Meco” or Chipotle Tipico) is grayish-tan, quite stiff, and often described as looking like a cigar butt. “Meco” chipotles are smoked for about twice as long as “Moritas” which gives them a more intense, rich flavor.
